  • It could mean a lot of things but no I don't think you're in trouble. Some dies make your poop green. For instance, purple/grape drinks make your stools green. It's probaby just something you ate and it mixed with the lemon.

  • Sorry I spelled dies wrong. It should have said dyes.

  • No, I didn't eat anything that was green candy or drinks or brocolli some people says causes green poop.I didn't have a stomach ache as some say comes with it.I think it's what lemon juice does to your poop.Lemons detox and green poop is a sign that you are getting clean..

  • It is bile. Your gall bladder and liver are being cleansed. :)
